Medium nose with lemon, pear, yellow peach, yogurt, creme brûlée, lychee and a hint of baking spice. Medium plus body with similar notes on the palates. Very long finish. Slightly sweet but enough acid to finish dry. Mouthwatering, complex and balanced.

Delicious, juicy with great freshness. Very mineral on the palate. Just a hint of honey and some nice floral notes.

Pears and peaches and serious structure but damn it's so frustrating to pick up a bottle of what you think is dry reisling and finding out it has a ton of RS. Just label it like the Germans, please!

I do not disagree with any one who rates this wine higher than myself. The rest of you... what are you drinking? Fantastic is an understatement.
